An Urgent Call for Volunteers from the PCC President
As some of you may know, I have recently relocated from Hopewell Township to Williamsport, which is about three hours away from the PCC. I’ve remained President, and tried to remain as an active tournament director as well. However, this is not sustainable, due to my new professional responsibilities. Also, Steve O’Connor has been a great PCC officer and steward for years, but has had to heavily cut back on his hours due to other concerns that require his time. We have yet to find a permanent replacement for him.
This means we need volunteers to help as directors, and as stewards, immediately.
Please understand that the Pittsburgh Chess Club depends heavily on volunteer effort. We run 14 tournaments a year, and we have regular Club hours twice a week. This means we need tournament directors and club stewards. Without those two critical areas covered, the Club will not be able to maintain its normal level of operations. Put bluntly: we may have to cut tournaments, and hours of operation.
There’s an old saying that many hands make light work. We need more hands. If you can help in any capacity, please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll get you in the rotation. If you want to learn how to direct, or find out what it’s like to be a steward, here’s your chance.
Thanks for your support, and Happy Holidays to you and yours. – Boyd Reed, December 6, 2017
